Oct/Nov/Dec. Wrap Up Post

46777I’ve just started blogging again after an unexpected hiatus, which means I never posted an end-of-the-year wrap up. I only read one book in November but it was so great I finished it in a day or two. Tithe by Holly Black is a fantastic start to her Modern Faerie series and I definitely recommend it!

I’m really excited for all the upcoming 2019 book releases and I can’t wait to share them with all of you!

November + December Wrap-Up Post

IMG_5798Happy New Year! I have not posted in such a long time, I am so sorry! I was in a bit of a blogging slump which turned into a reading slump, but I’m hoping to make up for it in January. I only read four books in the last couple months, so I’m a bit disappointed. I wanted to at least reach my goal of 75 books. On the plus side, none of the books I did read were bad.

My favourite one was Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra and Dhonielle Clayton. I’d heard good things about this book, but I was not prepared for how incredible it is! TPT switches between the POV’s of three dancers, who all attend a very competitive Manhattan ballet school and who all want the number one spot. Angst and drama, romance and revenge, this book has it all. The ending was also incredible and totally unexpected. Pretty Little Liars meets Dance Moms. TW: Eating disorder, addiction, harassment.

2018 Reading Goals:

My reading goals for 2018 are really simple: focus on books I own, backlist titles and 2018 debuts & sequels. I hate having regrets about my reading choices, so I’m only picking up titles that completely catch my interest. The only challenge I’ll be doing (at this point) is reading some of the books on the 2018 Canada Reads Longlist. I’d love to hear about your 2018 reading goals!

December Wrap-Up Post

5983694Happy New Year! It’s already 2017, time goes by so fast. I’ve been thinking about my reading goals for 2017 (which I’ll be posting soon) and have come to the realization I’m not completely happy with what I read in 2016. I read lots of things (75 books to be exact) but there were so many other books I wanted to read. I also feel like I read a lot more 5 star books in 2015. In 2017 I hope to read more diverse books, #OwnVoices and books on my backlist. I’d also like to finish some series versus starting new ones – I’m really bad with that.

Books Read:

All the Way Home by Natale Ghent

One Half from the East by Nadia Hashimi

Inuyasha Vol. 4-6 by Rumiko Takahashi

Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin

One Half from the East and Where the Mountain Meets the Moon were my favourite reads of December! I’m really excited to read more of both authors’ works in 2017. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to finish my reading challenge of 75 books, but I was able to get in three books at the last minute. I only read one book for #12DaysofDiversity (Where the Mountain Meets the Moon) but better luck next time right?
